Alan Turing is credited with assisting the allied forces in cracking the enigma code and thus the defeat of the German sea battle...
He invented a machine that further credits him with fatherhood of the modern computer (along with Babbage).
He was also gay...
It was not so long ago, that - in the 1950's - he was ARRESTED for his gayness... and effectively chemically sterilized by hormone treatments in a misguided effort to "cure him" of his affliction.
That was only sixty years ago.
Yes we've come a long way... but it's not too hard to make great progress when you start from such a pathetically low watermark.

I enjoyed re-watching Enemy Of The State (Will Smith).
You would too.
